    Running is just killing time between chronic injuries. I like rucking now, doesn't burn that much less calories than running but massively reduces injuries. I do 5-10km three times a week depending on how much time I have, 20kg rucksack. It's fairly hilly where I live too so you definitely notice it afterwards. I quite like carrying heavy things up stairs for a good cardio session as well. I don't mind swimming but I find it quite easy to just zone out during it and plough through though. Makes a difference if you can just switch off.

    I bought an air assault bike when I did my achilles and couldn't run for a long time. I love that. You can really hammer it.

    Rowing machines are great. Got to spend some decent money on them, though. I debated getting one but an assault bike was massively cheaper at the time.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    Still making daily use of our Maxi Climber, which we bought at the start of the lockdowns. We've even worn out some of the rollers (replaced with those from a s/h machine we bought later). They're great in that you are working against your own weight, there's nothing to adjust when a different person uses it. Definitely noticed the benefit during the last week while we were in N Wales. Looked up at Snowdon and thought, " yeah, I climbed that in our middle bedroom last week"

    While in N Wales, we took the opportunity to go to Newborough, on Anglesey, to see if we could find Red Squirrels. We did! At least four different ones!
    Now, here in the midlands, getting out anywhere to see reds is big thing for all our friends interested in Wildlife.
    I was so excited, I wanted to let them know asap so took a pic of the screen of my camera and posted it to our local WT photography group on FB.
    Just recently, the group introduced rules stipulating that the page is for local wildlife, but that specific locations should not accompany the photos.
    Despite this, I thought the forrin Red Squirrel image would still be of interest and I described the location as New-burr-oo-guh.
    Not good enough! The photo got taken down and I got a telling off!

    I make no secret of the fact that I'm a bit of a PowerShell fanboy
    You can do anything on a PC with PS but...
    ...even I have to admit that 'there is always another gotcha'
    just when you think it was all done.

    My personal peeve is blank lines, PS just loves outputting blank lines
    Well that and spurious/obvious/annoying header lines

    <sulk>I just want my stuff.</sulk>

    So tonight I decided I wanted the equivalent of the ol' DOS dir/w but without all the baggage
    Why can't I just set a -JustGiveMeMyStuff flag?

    So I ended up with this in my default $profile
    It will be of absolutely no consequence to anybody else ever but
    I'm feeling undeservedly smug at the moment so I have to tell somebody...

    function dirw {
    param ($x)
    (@(Get-ChildItem -Directory $x -Name | % { Write-Output "$_\" }) `
    + @(Get-ChildItem -File $x -Name | % { Write-Output "$_" }) `
    | Format-Wide {$_} -AutoSize -Force | Out-String) -Replace '(\r\n)+', "`r`n"
    }

    have a nice evening.

    Helium, because I'm worth it.
    Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounded like a radical holiday opportunity until I looked it up.

    Me neither. But that’s because we are not PowerShell gurus.

    I didn't realise "rucking" was a recognised activity.

    Makes me walking down to Aldi and carrying back a load of cheap beer seem much more worthy.

    Give myself a thumbs up!

    We just bought a car! It is a midlife crisis purchase for someone who just told me 'not to touch the paint when opening the doors', so I'm just not going to touch it ever.
